Chelsea have defeated Manchester City twice in the past month, but Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel doesn’t believe it counts for much ahead of the Champions League final.

City boss Pep Guardiola will field his best squad to face Chelsea and he will try to pour out his full arsenal against Thomas Tuchel’s team.

However, former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin believes City have a weakness which Chelsea can exploit.

Nevin believes that if Chelsea exploit City’s high defensive line then the Blues will get the victory.

Nevin wrote in his column for the official club website: “City do have a weakness; they defend very high and often leave spaces in behind and our coaching staff will know this.

“Somehow, we have to manipulate the game to use that area behind their defence well. They are far from terrible, but there is a little shaft of light to follow if we can manage it. We are undoubtedly the underdogs this time but there isn’t a great deal in it, particularly in a one-off game.

“It is far from the season ending we expected six months ago. In fact it probably isn’t what some expected six games ago, but it can still be one of the greatest seasons in the club’s history.

“In a strange season like this, one that Spurs help us get Champions League football on the last day, absolutely anything can and probably will happen. Like every one of you, I can’t wait for Saturday.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
